You've switched from non-noarch to noarch (or vice versa), which confuses
package resolvers (why exactly, I always forget - but it would make sense
if it were because both package types could coexist nicely). This is a
thing packagers should avoid like the plague. I get the same broken deps
on i386 when I run

  sudo yum install kadu-theme-nuvola16

but no such problems when I do

  sudo yum install kadu-theme-nuvola16.noarch


What I can do at the repository level is to get rid of any old non-noarch
rpms. I believe that is enough to "fix" it.
